NBA 2K18 Gameplay

When it comes to shooting the ball and playing offense, the players look like a little slow. Player movements drastically reduced.  Nonetheless, shooting inside and from the outside is still the same and I’m actually very happy for it. There were also cases of inability to finish the dunk from few players but, It was fixed by the latest NBA 2K18 Patch.

When it comes to defense, blocking your opponents has never been easier. If you play in the Hall Of Fame Difficulty level, you wont be able to dunk against Dwight Howard, Hassan Whiteside or Even Anthony Davis. We shouldn’t worry about that because its just fair.

There are also cases of ocassional floor slides which can break your momentum of the game. Be sure to make appropriate timeouts too, in order to disrupt the flow of your opponents offense.
